The aim of this research was to determine the most suitable plantation species for the south eastern North Island (Gisborne, Hawke’s Bay, Taranaki, Manawatu/Wanganui and Wellington regions) hill country as this region includes a large area of marginal land suitable for future afforestation. Key attributes examined as part of the selection process were health, siting and productivity. Based on these criteria the species selected were Pinus radiata, Sequoia sempervirens and Eucalyptus fastigata. (no keywords)
